Male or Female betta?

I got my betta fish about two weeks ago and it was considered as a "baby betta" at Petco even though it seemed a little bit larger than the other baby bettas. I probably sound like an idiot but I'm new to betta fishes so I can't really tell the difference between a male and female betta & I tried asking a worker at petco if they knew what it was and they said they had no idea since there was no specific type or gender on the label. So I was wondering if someone could help me out if its a boy or girl and what kind of betta it is. Its my first betta :) and it currently lives in a 2.5 heated tank! Sorry if the picture is blurry!

Looks like a female to me though in about 4 months or so (since it's a Baby) it may turn out to be a male like a friend of mine's Baby Betta did. We swore it was a female until just acouple months ago when his fins suddenly had a growth spurt over night.

I think it's a boy. Long ventral fins, and the shape of the dorsal too.

Guess we'll wait and see! Either way, s/he is a nice little fish.

I need a clearer picture. But I'm leaning towards male. I've done a fair share of determining gender of bettas throughout the years. It takes time to get it down.
